SSS Cheer and Joy october Release Bloghop

Hi Everyone!

I am super excited to part of today's bloghop to feature the Products from the new Cheer and Joy October release.

So many new favorites!


I started my masking my cardbase with post-it tape and then inked the center with distress ink. I then stamped the Amazing Christmas caleidoscope   bg in gold. I finished off by embossing the Season's greetings from  Holiday Greetings 1 in gold on red cardstock. I then added some green - mine are from Laurels dies (PS latest release)  but you can use the new SSS CHRISTMAS-FOLIAGE



Start by doing the hop and then make sure to visit the Cheer and Joy Gallery. It is a wonderful source for inspiration! We also love if you share your own projects made with this release there too.



There is, as Always, an awesome bloghop offer /code for blog hoppers to use when they shop - A free Simon Exclusive Post Office Box enamel pin.


Use code: HPYML9
This gift is while supplies last.
This promotion will expire on 10/13/19.









My second card was made the same way but I heat embossed the Christmas caleidoscope  bg patterned with gold and then added the Beautiful Grace snowflake and Merry frame die cut.



Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from our blog hop comment section. They will choose the winners over the weekend and post on the Simon Says Stamp  blog on Wednesday, the 16th of October. 




For my third card I chose a Beautiful stamp from Holiday Greetings 1 - I used my misti and stamped it in distress antique linen - I then colored it using Daniel Smith watercolors and when I was done, put it back in my misti and stamped again to heat emboss it in gold.








This last card is probably my favorite - I love this wreath die which gives you a Lovely guide to paint a wreath. It is also very Beautiful to just die cut and leave it like that. I love the Classic/ vintage look you can create with it. It was very simple and fast to make but it still looks woked at.

Great way to use that kaleidoscope background, cause there is no way I'm coloring that more than once! I immediately ruled it out because of that, but now I see how it can be more versatile. I'd love to see it heat embossed over an alcohol inked background too!
